I tried to mimic his movements--slowly, uncertainly, until I didn't have to think about it at all. It just felt right.

A liquid sensation swooped throughout my stomach. It was the most amazing thing I'd ever felt and it kept growing, the vibrating heat expanding outward. I was surprised I was still able to stand.”

Please don't let me forget.
Heather Anastasiu, Glitch

“He looked up and I realised how close we were, both of us leaning in together. I blinked a few times, suddenly light-headed, but not like before when I'd passed out.

Heather Anastasiu, Glitch
